Cecilia Mullins, director of the library, was unaware that the American flag must have a light on it at all times when on display, which is why a flag has been absent from the property.

Cherokee Village To Celebrate 60 Years

VIllage60thThere is no doubt that 60 years ago when John Cooper founded Cherokee Village it was a diamond in the dust, but over a half of a century later, the dust is off that diamond and it is shining bright. This weekend the work of a large group of volunteers will culminate the three day Diamond Jubilee Anniversary event.

Over a year’s planning and marketing the event, the celebration is sure to draw large crowds as people who chose to move to the area for retirement, lower cost of living, being closer to their children or just to improve their golf swing will gather and enjoy the festivities.
